I enjoy travelling! I know there's a lot of things to see and people to meet... so let's carry on!



Asia » Cambodia » North » Siem Reap July 23rd 2010

Yes, I do! After months of waiting, I finally conquered Siem Reap! And my expectations were all met! Woot woot! Went with my friends from previous work and the more they made this trip a memorable one! It was an exciting experience! Exploring the temples and having a taste of Cambodia’s culture was, indeed, a learning experience. Cambodians are nice people! From our driver Song, to the hotel’s receptionist, to the waiters and to the stall owner’s! I just enjoyed dealing with them… well, I got a little tired (well maybe a little more haha) negotiating with the sellers in the old and night markets. They gave me a hard time with their merchandise! But it was fun and all worth it! I got my money’s worth, I think hahaha! Paying in US Dollars is very ... read more

Asia » China » Beijing September 4th 2009

From August 28 to 31 With college friends (Hannah and Jocelyn) and friend from work (Jonna). Our first time to travel out of the country! And first time in Beijing! Expectations exceeded. It's a clean city. A little colder than Manila and a lot better (yikes!). The only downside.. no social networking sites allowed! Facebook was banned! FB banned! FB... dang! Sayang :) Went to Bird's Nest although no pix here since i ran out of camera bat.. waiting for Hannah and Jocelyn's memory card. But I like the place. Huge! I just hope they get to use it for something else. Read somewhere that venues used for Olympics has a tendency to be left unpleasantly barren. Look at Athens... ouch! Enjoyed Great WallI and I want to see the other parts next time. It's a ... read more

Asia » Vietnam » Southeast » Ho Chi Minh City October 26th 2008

Oct. 17 to 21 with family. Bring this guide with you when you go to Vietnam :) -> Thank you - cam on -> How much - baw new -> Expensive - makwa -> Waitress - emoy -> Hello - xin chao -> Go straight - di thang -> Right - fai -> Left - sai It's a good shopping place, especially Ben Than market. My advice: haggle! Use the word 'makwa' a lot! And if you are given a certain price, offer 75% off and work your way up a little up to 60% off. They'll give in I promise you :) When dining in Saigon Cruise (especially the no. 1 ship - I forgot the name), take note that they charge entrance fee (my hotel advised me that there was no entrance fee) and ... read more
